Gorham – Joseph (Joe) Anthony Rosato was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. All who knew him are mourning his sudden death on November 13th, 2021 at the age of 71.

The family would like to invite all who knew Joe to attend calling hours on Saturday, Nov. 27th from 2-4 p.m. at the Kenneth J. Perkins Funeral Home in Gorham. A Celebration of Life will be held immediately following calling hours at the Gorham Fire Hall.

He was born to Samuel and Betty Rosato on June 25th, 1950 in Rochester, NY. After his school years, he worked in the construction field. He was married to Barbara Irene Rosato on September 15th, 1969. With the love of his life by his side, they raised 4 boys: Joseph, Keith, Salvatore and Joshua.

To say that Joe loved his family more than life itself would be an understatement and they will always cherish their memories of his warm smile and genuine, loving hugs. He was also known for his gigantic heart that was always willing to help with whatever was needed no matter if it was a friend or a stranger. The world will never be the same without him in it.

In addition to his 4 sons, Joe is survived by his mother Betty; his siblings, Daniel Rosato, David Rosato, Grace Cauwels, Anthony Rosato, Michael Rosato, Laura Rosato and Vincent Rosato; as well as 13 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Joe was preceded in death by his wife Barbara; his father Samuel and two brothers, Samuel Rosato and Russell Rosato.
